A public meeting with angry residents and eager reporters is a common feature on the local news. Whether addressing environmental, or other issues, the experience for the board members, consultants, and specialists at these meetings ranges from uncomfortable to nightmarish. The issues discussed in these meetings usually stem from years of community disappointment, mistrust, fears, factions, political or social positioning, or all of the above. Industry faces a labyrinth of environmental and business regulations, and unique challenges in dealing with the public and the media. Environmental Risk Communication serves as a guide to understanding and complying with the Federal Risk Management Program and applying risk management and communication principles to daily plant operations. This book also helps Risk Management Plan (RMP) facilities successfully meet the new Federal requirements for public disclosure of RMP offsite consequence analysis results and provides techniques for communicating effectively during environmental emergencies. Written in a straight-forward, no-nonsense style the book presents concise informative chapters, flow diagrams, checklists, and a thorough index. The authors present step-by-step instruction on developing a principled plan of action that generates open communications. CEOs, Corporate Communications Specialists, Plant Managers, Environmental Compliance Supervisors, Health and Safety Officers, Environmental Scientists and Engineers, and Consultants will benefit from Environmental Risk Communication.

"...a well written and easy to follow book for any professional in the industrial environmental, safety, or public relations field...Mr. Sadar is very knowledgeable and his teaching skills are evident...This book could help the "specialist" who handles multiple responsibilities for a company to focus when writing and implementing a Risk Communication Program." -Conrad J. Sobczak, Environmental/Safety Specialist, The Plastek Group "This is the first place you should go before preparing to release your RMP results. The authors' point out the errors others have made, and lay the groundwork for you to not make the same mistake. I would recommend this book to anyone, but especially to those who normally have little public/media contact."-Dick Baker, Environmental Compliance Supervisor, Arizona Chemical Promo Copy
